Bugatti Veyron Driven on Water

Located in an affluent community of Galveston County, Texas, the owner of this Bugatti Veyron was apparently distracted and lost control of his 1001hp hypercar, leaving it beached in the shallows of a salt water lake.

The owner of the video states this is the "third or fourth Veyron crashed" in the area. The driver was uninjuried but now the question of insurance coverage emerges for the $2 million vehicle.

One of the biggest destroyers of an automobile is water, no less the salty kind, in large quantities and for most high volume vehicles, it's a one way ticket to the salvage yard. Water causes corrosion and penetrates the smallest crevices. It especially likes to hide in electrical wiring which can create a multitude of problems at any given time, sometimes even years later.

But the Veyron is no oridnary car, and with such a price tag and lack of collision damage, it's highly unlikely this Bugatti swan is an insurance write off. The passenger cell and quarter panels are constructed of carbon fiber while the doors, front and rear frame extrusions or crash boxes are constructed of aluminum. The only major component constructed of steel is the engine cradle or sub-frame.

So, the biggest concern is not the body as it is impervious to corrosion by water, but instead other components such as engine, driveline, suspension, brakes, turbo system, complex cooling system with its 14 radiators and worst of all, the electrical/electronics are the big concern. Bugatti isn't exactly mass producing replacement parts available in the local VW dealerships, so look for a year or more for this tadpole to hit the road again.

Batman will find it tough to resist this DIY Batmobile replica

We’ve seen a whole lot of Batmobile replicas, but the thing only gets better with time, and till replicas like this are being made, we say keep ’em coming. This Batmobile is all hard work, its creator spent 20,000 hours modifying a 1973 Lincoln Continental to bring to the shape and form of the Batmobile. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg; the vehicle is loaded with gadgets and weaponry, Batman style. It has machine guns, video cameras, height adjustable bodywork, Voice recognition, DVD Player, and a plasma TV, so you know, Batman can get some fun while dispensing vigilante justice.

The Batmobile was built over three and a half years, and has 700 horses under the hood. The car cost a million dollars to build, thereby proving that Bruce Wayne lives in Stockholm, and not the fictional Gotham City as publicized.

Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB clad in gold

We’ve seen so many chromed cars in the past few days that the golden Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB almost seems like a welcome change. This ought to put that car’s owner away from those peasants that drive the “normal” Ferrari 599 GTBs. That should be quite an ego-booster, until this person comes across the gold covered Veyron. Also, now that our eyes have returned to normal vision after the initial flash of gold, we think this golden car sucks as much as its chromed counterparts.
The ownr of the car is saudi he is from SAUDI ARABIA

The world’s first Spaceport being built in the USA

Space is the next frontier, and space tourism is probably the next big thing. Space tourists will have a terminus of their own next year when the construction of a Spaceport is completed in New Mexico. Virgin Galactic plans to use the spaceport to send people into orbit, and there are a lot of people interested in the idea. Nearly 45,000 people have already registered for a space trip from the new spaceport.

Each trip will cost the tourists $200,000, and Virgin hopes that it will have a flight every week, with at least six people on board. The spaceport has been designed by London-based architecture firm Foster + Partners. The structure will seek to display the same mystery and drama as a spaceflight is likely to have.

2009 BMW M Concept: Designer Idries Noah’s answer to the Audi R8

Tired of waiting for BMW to come up with an Audi R8 rival, designer Idreas Noah created this independent design proposal for a sleek, stylish and aggressive Beemer. Inspiration for the design came from flowing water and ripples, and the sides are inspired by what’s called in surfing terms “a barrel or tube.” The concept runs on a tweaked 5-l V10 from the M6, that would generate more than 400kW power. Dimensions for the M Concept are nearly the same as its targeted rival, the Audi R8.
